P4-2018-10-11 – Recap: Drive Your Porsche Day-2018
Story and photos by Gary Ambrus
To celebrate the 109th birthday of Dr. Ferry Porsche…close to 30 members of the Southeast Michigan Region enjoyed a Sunday afternoon drive and dinner. The drive started out in cloudy skies……but by the end…..partly sunny weather prevailed.
The starting point for the drive was from the parking lot of Laurel Park Mall in Livonia. We then traveled West to Chelsea via North Territorial Road, headed Southeast to Saline and eventually East ending in the little village of Willis, established in 1887, for dinner. Throughout the route a hint of fall color was starting to show. The dinner destination was Bone Heads Bar-B-Que, a charming (and some say haunted) restaurant. A lot of interesting roads and territory was covered in the 75 mile drive.
During the socializing in the Laurel Park parking lot, a non-member of the club was out driving in his Porsche and spotted our gathering of Porsches. He stopped in, got acquainted and joined is for the drive and dinner. Looks like we have a future new member.
The region pretty much took over almost all of Bone Heads Bar-B-Q for dinner. Considerable socializing took place throughout the restaurant and all seemed to enjoy the company.
